Temporary Roof Enclosure
JD Belfield Enterprises custom designs and builds (TRE’s) Temporary Roof Enclosures. These TRE’s are built to protect the job site from weather and help our clients shorten their project schedule by enclosing their work areas. We install a dance floor work platform below the TRE so that multiple trades can work above and below at the same time safely, and as well as install gantry cranes below the TRE to assist in the installation of such things as skylights and steel members.

Pimlico School Renovations & Additions
Project Scope & Results: The Pimlico Elementary and Middle School project includes the full renovation and modernization of 78,000 square feet of the existing building as well as a 40,000 square foot addition. The original school building is going to be rebuilt and will support the elementary portion while the middle school will be in the 1924 building. The goal is to create a 21st-century learning environment while maintaining the original historic buildings.
On J.D Belfield’s portion of the project, we have worked with Patuxent Engineering Group to develop a custom fabricated retention system to stabilize the 1910 historic façade. This custom design also accommodates an exterior Bracing System that accommodates the demolition of the existing slab on grade, floor framing, & roof systems. Our Façade Bracing System does not interfere with any of the elements required for the new construction (ex. New Footings, Columns, Floor Beams, Roof Framing, Etc.)
In an effort to preserve the exterior façade, all custom fabricated connections were designed to clamp to the exterior walls so that zero penetrations were required thru the historic fabric. Wood blocking was used as a buffer between our fabricated steel system and the façade so that no damage occurred to the historic brick. Also, ballast was installed around the building to resolve anticipated wind loads during the reconstruction of the interior structure and is also positioned to accommodate future excavation & waterproofing around the exterior foundation.
